=== Few bash snippets ===
@Source (https://jonfhancock.com/bash-your-way-to-better-android-development-1169bc3e0424)
=== Using tail -n
//Use tail to remove the first line. Actually two lines. The first one is just a newline. The second is “List of devices attached.”
$ adb devices | tail -n +2
=== Using cut -sf
// Cut the last word and any white space off the end of each line.
$ adb devices | tail -n +2 | cut -sf -1
=== Using xargs -I
// Given the -I option, xargs will perform an action for each line of text that we feed into it.
// We can give the line a variable name to use in commands that xargs can execute.
$ adb devices | tail -n +2 | cut -sf -1 | xargs -I X echo X aw yiss
=== Three options below together
// Will print android version of all connected devices
adb devices | tail -n +2 | cut -sf -1 | xargs -I X adb -s X shell getprop ro.build.version.release
=== Using alias
-- Example 1
alias tellMeMore=echo
tellMeMore "hi there"
Output => hi there
-- Example 2
// Define alias
alias apkinstall="adb devices | tail -n +2 | cut -sf 1 | xargs -I X adb -s X install -r $1"
// And you can use it later
apkinstall ~/Downloads/MyAppRelease.apk // Install an apk on all devices
-- Example 3
alias rmapp="adb devices | tail -n +2 | cut -sf 1 | xargs -I X adb -s X uninstall $1"
rmapp com.example.myapp // Uninstall a package from all devices
-- Example 4
alias clearapp="adb devices | tail -n +2 | cut -sf 1 | xargs -I X adb -s X shell pm clear $1"
clearapp com.example.myapp // Clear data on all devices (leave installed)
-- Example 5
alias startintent="adb devices | tail -n +2 | cut -sf 1 | xargs -I X adb -s X shell am start $1"
startintent https://twitter.com/JonFHancock // Launch a deep link on all devices
Setting up your .bash_profile
Finally, to make this all reusable even after rebooting your computer (aliases only last through the current session), we have to add these to your .bash_profile. You might or might not already have a .bash_profile, so let’s make sure we append to it rather than overwriting it. Just open a terminal, and run the following command
touch .bash_profile && open .bash_profile
This will create it if it doesn’t already exist, and open it in a text editor either way. Now just copy and paste all of the aliases into it, save, and close.
alias startintent="adb devices | tail -n +2 | cut -sf 1 | xargs -I X adb -s X shell am start $1"
alias apkinstall="adb devices | tail -n +2 | cut -sf 1 | xargs -I X adb -s X install -r $1"
alias rmapp="adb devices | tail -n +2 | cut -sf 1 | xargs -I X adb -s X uninstall $1"
alias clearapp="adb devices | tail -n +2 | cut -sf 1 | xargs -I X adb -s X shell pm clear $1"

An app called "LADB" allows for adb shell access on device.. Via local host and wireless debugging. Worth every penny imo

@Basu-max likely not with the adb binary. I could imagine a scenario where you wrote a console program that proxies through to adb but only supported a restricted list of functions...

Thanks for the reply.
Right. Specially I was wondering if it is possible to configure the ADB demon to remove/disable modules that remove/disable specific CMDs. This would prevent a proxy program.
Objective is to secure ADB by restricting to a pre configured ADM CMD list.
Adding a proxy program to mask CMDs while ADB present would not meet the objective.

hotdang-ca commented May 17, 2022

adb would, indeed, not meet the objective. In fact, you'll need developer mode turned on at the device to even connect, so this may not be the solution you are looking for.

Depending on the nature of the command, you could also remove / disable the command while you are in the system through adb. It is a linux system, after all.

Just wanted to share this command to force-stop all user installed apps:

If you're running from within the emulator
pm list packages -3 | awk -F "package:" '{print $2}' | xargs -n1 am force-stop

If you're running via adb:
adb shell pm list packages -3 | awk -F "package:" '{print $2}' | xargs -n1 adb shell am force-stop

adb shell input text 'foo\&'

adb shell input text 'foo\&^'
adb shell input text 'foo\&\^'
adb shell echo Hello "\&" World
adb shell echo Hello \& World

On Older Devices the below command probably works fine as well

You need to connect to your device via adb connect

adb connect <ip>:<port> 

First you need to enable tcp mode as below with usb cable connected

  • Plugin USB and execute
adb tcpip 5555
  • Remove USB Cable and connect to your device via network:
adb connect <ip>:5555
  • Now you can work with your device via network, enter shell as usual:
adb shell

WARNING: *Don't forget to DISCONNECT when you have finished debugging.
You can be in danger and may be listed at shodan.io and other sites similiar to shodan if you will keep tcpip be running in background. We can find your device via a simple portscan via masscan or similiar tools, so use below command when you are done in shell:

adb disconnect 

To show you the danger with keep tcp mode running, for more tips to stay safe you can visit the below url for get latest commands since some are out of date I see here:

https://wuseman.github.io/adb-cheatsheet/

  • You can copy and paste in any terminal and you are connected to a random device that has tcpip running without device owners knowledge, there is no way to figure out wihtout list connected devices ON the device. Therefore, take my warning seriously! Within ~1-3 seconds you have connected to a device.

Now imagine if we use xargs -n1 -P20, then we connect to 20 device at same time. So be careful!!

Hi, How can I turn on airplane mode using adb commands !! I had tried many commands, but it actually only changing the icon, it is not turning off radio signal !!

Hi.

Interesting find.

Does the icon become brighter than usual when you use the command via adb in notification center for airplane_mode @muhammedbasilek ?

No, it slightly dim when it turns on.

Hi again, I finally I figured this out, please try:

Get airplane mode

adb shell cmd connectivity airplane-mode                                                  
disabled

Turn airplane mode enable/disable

adb shell cmd connectivity airplane-mode enable                     
adb shell cmd connectivity airplane-mode disable

You must provide a little more information otherwise it is difficult to help.

  • Did: adb shell cmd connectivity airplane-mode - work or did you get any error message?

If command was ${{\color{green}{OK}}}$ did you try:

adb shell cmd connectivity airplane-mode enable

..If the command was ${{\color{cyan}{valid}}}$

adb shell cmd connectivity airplane-mode

Was the value changed in shell?

    1. Which Android version do you have installed?

Cool, I thought it was a bit strange otherwise.
You welcome, cheers :)
